Bishop is a two-year-old, pure bred kelpie in need of an active home. He was surrendered to us recently due to his owners not being able to give him the time he needed. He has lived in a home with cats, in fact his best friend was a cat and they would play fight, so if you have cats, they would need to be dog savvy and robust because Bishop will want to be firm buddies.
Bishop loves other dogs and can be submissive, he loves to play but is a vocal player and will jump around and bark to engage play. He has great basic commands (sit, lay down), he waits for his dinner and is house trained.
Kelpies will herd things, so older children are best as he might want to round up little ones, bless him. An understanding of the breed is important and you will need to get him out running and exploring.
Bishop is high energy but has a very loving nature and listens very well to what you are asking of him. He will need further training and his person will need to involve him in their day. This is a fantastic boy that has so much personality and love to give the right person.
Bishop is based at Club HUHA in Otaki. Please call (04) 392-3232 if you think Bishop is your boy.
